In the Tradition Jazz Ensemble

Hackley Public Library

Jazz

In The Tradition began in Detroit in the early 1990’s when 5 members of the Neal Henry Septet formed the Christopher James/Charles Hopkins Quintet.  Over the years they became In the Tradition and found their calling.  Through the works of In The Tradition they “seek to educate listeners around the world about the African story, and hook the culturally disenfranchised members of the 'Diaspora' back into their heritage, laying on them [the] ensemble's refined expression of African-American classical music, in as authentic a presentation as they can muster.” (Matt Ward, Detroit Jazz Magazine, 10-16-13)

“This band's métier is straight-ahead Jazz, unplugged and resplendent in all its acoustic simplicity and textural earthiness, and underpinned by rhythms inspired by all parts of the far-flung reaches of the African Diaspora”...Matt Ward, Detroit Jazz Magazine, 10-16-13.

Brought to the community through a generous bequest from Bess Commodore. WUVS 103.7 "The Community Station" the Beat is the media sponsor.

A Raisin in the Sun

When her deceased husband's insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home in a better neighborhood. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school. The Younger family's heroic struggles to retain dignity in a harsh and changing world is a searing and timeless document of hope and inspiration.
